Twitch 2015 Retrospective

Video game streaming platform Twitch had a big year in 2015, with an average of 1.7 million broadcasters streaming content every month.

The company has released additional stats from its year in its 2015 Retrospective, which reveals users streamed over 241 billion minutes of content last year.

Using ComScore data, Twitch said its views equaled 421.6 minutes watched per month, per viewer, compared to 291 minutes on YouTube.

Twitch averaged 550,000 concurrent viewers in 2015. Concurrent viewers peaked on August 23, when over two million concurrent viewers watched content like the League of Legends NA LCS Finals and ESL One: Cologne 2015.

As for concurrent broadcasters, this figure peaked at 35,610 in November, which Twitch attributed to the launch of Twitch Creative and the yearly Extra Life charity event.

Twitch saw more than one million mobile installs in 2015, with mobile devices now accounting for 35 percent of Twitch’s viewership each month. The fastest growing mobile game on the platform in 2015 was Super Evil Megacorp’s Vainglory, and by the end of December 2015, users had watched over four million minutes of Vainglory content.

Overall, League of Legends was the most-watched game in 2015, followed by Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2 in second and third place, respectively.
